Circuit Skills #1: Circuit Board Etching Kit

The Jameco ValuePro Prototyping kit is perfect for the detailed hobbyist. The pre sensitized boards along with the chemicals allow a designer to copy a drawing and instantly create an etched board. By treating the circuit board with light similar to a photographic negative a much higher level of precision is obtainable.

MAKE Magazine's contributing writer Collin Cunningham teaches you how to etch your own circuit board. Of course, an etched circuit board is the most accurate way to build a circuit and gives the designer much more flexibility. What Collin teaches us is that we no longer have to send our designs away to a PCB manufacturer, we can now do it ourselves, and have fun at the same time. Although there are three popular "subtractive" methods (to remove copper) used for the production of PCB's, his video uses photoengraving.

Collin then drills his circuit board using Jameco's Mini Drill Bit Kit. The entire process takes less than an hour to complete.
